  1. I had gone there last Christmas with my choir, we were seeing a bunch of plays and my teacher had picked this hotel to stay at. The first hour of being there I looks at the stairs and notice an odd man standing there and got my friend. We both saw this man there until all of a sudden he was gone. The next time something like this had happened was later that night, we had gotten back and we settling into the room when we heard foot steps outside. We opened the door to find out that nobody was around the room, we checked with all the people on that floor to see if they had just came back or were leaving and they all said they hadn’t left there rooms with in the time frame give. That last thing was me waking up in the middle of the night to find a robe draped over me. I had gone to sleep well after my room mates and woke up several times throughout the night due to a cold draft right where I was sleeping. The only one of the others said they woke up twice during the night and said the first time I didn’t have it on, to find the second time that they I was then covered in a robe. So maybe it was my mind playing tricks on me and I had forgotten. But with others having the same experience I don’t know.

  2. I stayed here two weekends ago and had no clue it was known for being haunted. I would have taken more pictures! I was just playing with my editor on a photo my boyfriend took of me when we were in the lounge. I can’t believe I didn’t notice it before but there is a little blonde headed girl in the clock mirror. It was midnight and absolutely no children were around. It makes me really sad to think of a child forver searching for their parents. This only lets me post one picture so you’ll have to zoom .The hotel is beautiful I do recommend staying there when you are in town.
